This week Apple came clean and admitted what many users have suspected for a long time: The tech giant slows down older iPhones by throttling their CPUs.
However, Apple explained that it does this to keep older iPhones — and their deteriorating batteries — running at optimal performance. The only way to avoid a system slowdown is to have Apple or a third party replace your iPhone's old battery with a new one.
If you're strapped for cash or just feeling adventurous, you could try replacing the battery by yourself. Should you go that route, Amazon is discounting a handful of battery replacement kits for the iPhone 6 through iPhone 7 as seen below.
